MILWAUKEE -- Major League Baseball revealed its 30 winners on Monday of the 2012 Honorary Bat Girl program, which recognizes baseball fans who have been affected by breast cancer and demonstrate a commitment of "Going to Bat" in the fight against the disease.

The Reds' honorary bat girl will be Tina Amrhein of Brookville, Indiana. Amrhrein, who was 19 when she lost her mother to breast cancer, was herself affected by the disease that required radical surgery and chemotherapy.

Amrhein, who is married with two grown children and two foster children, and is a volunteer for Special Olympics, will be at Sunday's Reds-Nationals game on Mother's Day.
